    A Holy Mass was served, then Rev. Fr. Eghia Derdzakyan parish priest of the village spoke of marital love and fidelity.

     

     

    “You chose each other to unite, to become one body ․․․ You are united in front of God, connected with one another by the grace and blessing of Christ.

    Jesus always has a bride. Who is the Jesus’ bride: Church and who is the church? All of us. Jesus renounced his divinity; he became our servant, and you did the same thing to serve your families.
